College life, traditionally gay
with youth, music, and laughter,
assumed a newly serious tone as
the University of Wyoming geared
itself for war. Some semblance of
school as usual has been main-
tained this year, undoubtedly the
last such year for the duration.
We hope that the 1943 WYO
will do more than present a sum-
mary of the year's events, and
that it will recreate in your mem-
ories a vivid picture of this highly
Steers Campus At War
Headed by President J. L. Morrill, the University administra-
tion has had this year an unusually difficult assignment. Their
object has been to make the greatest possible contribution to
the war effort while simultaneously maintaining a semblance of
education as usual. The expanding naval aviation training pro-
gram here, the army engineering training program, the many
special "war courses" added to the curricula, and the men whom
the school has contributed to the armed forces evidence their
success. Traditional college training is still provided here for
a sizable number of students despite the exigencies of war.
Since President Morrill came here from Ohio State University
last spring, he has come to be recognized by both faculty mem-
bers and students as one of the University's most valuable assets.
Possessing the rare ability to be both a good fellow and a good
administrator, Dr. Morrill leads the school in every sense of the
President Morrill at his desk in Old Main.
Five colleges make up the University of Wyoming, and each is headed
by a dean. They are Dean J. A. Hill of Agriculture, Dean R. R. Hamilton of
Engineering, Dean P. T. Miller of Liberal Arts, Dean R. D. Goodrich of Engi-
neering, and Dean O. C. Schwiering of Education. The school offers training
of recognized quality in each of these five broad fields. Each college is divided
into departments manned by able faculty members.
General supervision over living quarters, social affairs, and standards of
students is exercised by Miss E. Luella Galliver, dean of women, and Major
B. C. Daly, dean of men.
Though a number of faculty members have entered the armed forces,
those remaining have increased their loads so that educational training of
a high calibre is afforded in each department.

The 1943 WYO is Dedicated
Members of the advanced Reserve Officers Training Corps, men who were
our classmates and friends, left school before the end of the year to help
fight our country's battle. We appreciate the significant contributions to
University life and tradition which they made as members of this student
body. It is to these men, and to all other Cowboys who have entered the
armed forces, that we dedicate this book in gratitude and pride.

Alpha Chi Omega
The Alpha Chi's live in their own house over on 1309 Grand,
been there twelve years. It's kind of an exciting place, what with
everybody swishin' back and forth. Each Mile, has her days
crammed with things to do and places to go, but the gals are never
too busy to enjoy each other; and we do mean enjoy. Never hope
to see a more congenial lot.
The girls have been engaging this year in some "cup copping,"
such as taking first in the Homecoming Sing. Some people label
such things as accomplishments, but the girls just call it fun.
Like all good Americans, the AXO'ers are great joiners, and
consequently office holders. Just look here: Priscilla Ann McKmney,
managing committee, Big Sister ex-chairman, president of A.W.S.,

Sigma Phi Epsilon
The dream of six years was realized this spring when Lambda
Tau Delta, local fraternity, was installed as Wyoming Alpha of
Sigma Phi Epsilon. Organized in 1937 as a local, the fraternity
achieved a place of distinction on the campus. Full cooperation
with the University has been the aim of the group. Its members
have participated in campus affairs and have won their share
of honors in scholarship, athletics, dramatics, and other fields.
Constant friendship among its members has always been a
strong point of the local chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon.
Like the other fraternities on the campus, the group has had
its membership cut during the past year through contributing
many men to different branches of the service.
Eilsworth Young led the fraternity this year as president.
Other officers included Frank Hartung, vice-president and
treasurer; John Rees, secretary and rush chairman; Jack Temple,
social chairman; Harold Lochard, historian; James Clark, schol-
arship chairman, and Charles Ross, athletic chairman.
Other members who have been outstanding include Eldon
House, Student Senate . . . Dwight Bailey, Scabbard and Blade
. . . Kelly Berkley, scholarship.
When Sig Ep installed its chapter here May 1 and 2, several
years of hard work and steady progress were rewarded.

26, 1917, after many prominent years as the local chapter of
Sigma Beta Phi, is one of the oldest fraternities on the campus.
In almost any sporting event, campus organization, or social
activity one finds SAE's as active participants.
With more than enough varsity football players to field an entire
team, and standouts in all other sporting events, it is only natural
that SAE has been nicknamed "The Tenth Street Athletic Club."
SAE's own football team would include Clayton, Ray, Feeley, Loving,
Black, McGee, Chenoweth, Scott, Amedro, Kirby, Cross, Katana,
Beers, and Samuelson. Helping the cause would be two freshman
players, Tobin and Fabrizius. Varsity baseball players Putz, Rudy,
Harvey, and Bostwick, with freshman stalwarts Copenhaver, Frog-
gatt, and Miles carry the SAE colors on the diamond.
In basketball, Komenich, Katana, and Ray play important parts.

Neither beauty, brains, nor popularity alone is the
keynote of Pi Beta Phi, but rather a combination of all
three. The oldest sorority on Wyoming's campus, the
local chapter of Pi Phi was installed in 1910. Occupying
a position of honor among the Pi Phi trophies is the Pan-
hellenic scholarship cup which the chapter won last year.
Pi Phi has four girls in Workshop Dance, one Phi Bete,
numerous ski enthusiasts. The Pi Beta Phis have geared
themselves to wartime living, and the arrow is pointing
ahead to still higher achievements.

conventions of both organizations.
More than two hundred students, who are not
fraternity or sorority members, are active in the
Independent Club. Activities include dancing every
Monday evening, quarterly formal and informal
dances, participation in all athletic and social com-
petitive events, and a spring picnic.

program for the year.
Varsity Villagers rank high scholastically and are
active in such organizations as Iron Skull, Spurs,

One of the most beautiful buildings on the campus is Knight Hall, newest girls'
dormitory. This is Knight Hall's third year of existence, and once again the group
was outstanding in Homecoming events. Jean Ballantyne, who reached final balloting
for queen, is a Knight Hall girl, and the group won second prize for independents in
the Homecoming Sing.
A popularly elected board governs Knight Hall, headed this year by Dorothy Hartt.
Lois Scott, Betty Nelson, and Willa Dee Davis also served as officers.
Girls who live in Knight Hall eat their meals there in an attractive private dining
room. Regular parties and a yearly dance make up the social program. Living facilities
in Knight Hall could be compared with the best in any school.

in nature or fall under A. S. U. W. jurisdiction.
"Smooth-functioning" describes the workings
of this body.
In tune with the war effort, the A. W. S
Board has tried this year to encourage a pro-
gram of good health habits, rest, and exercise
among the women students. The Board also
sponsored the mechanical aptitudes test given

chapter was installed in 1921 and has grown
steadily, having well over a hundred members
The activities of the club are religious, edu-
cational, and social in nature. Retreats, lec-
tures, and discussion groups make up the more
serious side of the program, while the social
phase includes parties, dances, and picnics.
Rex Cross was elected president of the

Potter Law Club stages a moot trial.
Named after a former member of Wyoming's
supreme court, the Potter Law Club is open to all
law school students. Activities of this group are
both social and professional.
So that law students may gain practical expe-
rience, the club stages several moot trials each year,
which are open to the public.
Social events held by the club include a banquet
fall quarter, a formal dinner dance winter quarter,
and a formal banquet spring quarter.
Homecoming Queen elections are sponsored by
the Potter Law Club. This year the Lawyers stole
the Engineers' "W" placed on the Engine Hall dur-
ing Homecoming, which served to add fresh fuel
to an old feud.
The club has lost a large number of men to the
armed forces, but this is partly compensated for
by the fact that girls in the club have reached an
all-time high of five members. More than seventy
law school graduates are now in service.
Officers of the group include Russell Combs,
chancellor; Clarence Lucas, vice-chancellor; Pris-
cilla McKinney, secretary; Joe Minihan, treasurer;
and Lyman Yonkee, senator.

addition, Spurs is a service organization. This year
the groups sold defense stamps down town and also
sold tickets for the President's Ball and the Victory

Best in Years, But
Built around a great bunch of sophomores and juniors, Wyoming's 1942
football team made the best showing in Big Seven conference play of any team
the high-country has turned out since the conference began in 1937.
In winning three games and losing five, the Bernard F. Oakes-coached eleven
was never outclassed in any game. A year more of experience and the Cowhands
would have reversed four of their five losses.
Four members of the Puncher team received much mention in all-conference
picks. Earl "Shadow" Ray, Cowboy junior tailback, was named to several all-
conference first teams. Other players receiving mention were end Leonard
Scott, tackle John Lentz, and guard Frank Gruden. All the latter three were
playing their first year of varsity ball for Wyoming.

Fate Plays a Hand
Wyoming opened their season in Laramie against Colorado State's formidable
Aggies. Early-season predictions had favored the Aggies to take the conference
crown. The Punchers far outgained Aggies both on the ground and in the air,
were inside the Farmer fifteen-yard line six times, but lost the opener 10-0.
Dude Dent scored all the Ag points. The loss was charged off to experience.
The Cowboys hit their stride the following week in Provo. In a night game
with Brigham Young, the Punchers walked off with a 13-7 win. Nimmo Taylor's
sparkling 46-yard run for touchdown after catching a pass was a feature of the
Wyoming's next game was here with Greeley State. The Bears had the best
team in the Little Five. They wanted a victory over the Punchers to fatten their
record. But four Wyoming tailbacks enjoyed a good afternoon and Wyoming
won 33-0. Roger Loving, Shadow Ray, Gene Smith, and Walt Andre all crossed
the goal line, Loving getting a brilliant 60-yard run for a touchdown.

With visions of conference championships in
their eyes and a great ball club to back it up,
Wyoming journeyed into Denver for a game
with the D. U. Pioneers. The game was carefully
played and methodical. The Punchers led 14-1 1
with c minute to go. Wyoming had outplayed
the Pioneers most of the way and looked like a
great ball club. Then disaster struck.
A freshman Denver back named Harold Hand
faded back to his 30-yard line and threw a long,
wobbly pass. Leon Diner, Denver end, caught it
amid a pile of Wyoming players, wiggled loose
long enough to throw a lateral to Tom Saracino,
who scampered for a touchdown. Wyoming lost
17-14 on that last-minute play. They never re-
covered from the shock of losing that one.
Another Little Five team, Colorado Mines,
got the pent-up fury the Punchers had saved
after losing the Denver game. Wyoming slopped
through a muddy field at Golden to trounce the
Miners 26-6. Dick Heasler's 46-yard run for a
score high-lighted the contest.

The Dream's End
After the Denver game, Wyoming's stock began going
down hill. They whipped Colorado Mines 26-6, then took
a week's rest. Theoretically the Punchers should have
been well rested for their next game with Colorado's
For a half Wyoming battled the C. U. team to a 7-7
tie. Then Colorado broke loose with a rash of touchdowns
and demoralized the Wyoming team, winning 27-7. The
Cowboys played the Buffs a much closer game than the
score indicated. Injuries to Roger Loving and Dick Heasler
which kept them from this game, didn't help any.
Homecoming for the Cowboys. Utah's conference
champion Redskins provided the opposition. The game
turned into an easy win for the Utes 34-7. This was the
only game all year in which Wyoming was outclassed. At
that, Roger Loving's 60-yard run for touchdown tied the
score 7-7 in the second quarter.
A team that had gradually slipped down the trail from
a great club to a bewildered bunch of players lost their last
game of the season to an inferior Utah State team at
Logan 14-6. Shadow Ray ran 74 yards for a touchdown
this game, but most of the time Wyoming just slipped
around in the mud.

together another year they'd be sure-fire conference con-

After Wyoming's win of the national colle-
giate championship, the state's ten-gallon hat
sailed sky-high, and the Cowboy team was
welcomed back to Laramie and the University
with an all-out reception.
Impromptu celebrations broke out all over
the campus and city, and a Victory holiday
was declared for University students, while
Laramie merchants closed their stores for a
half-day in their honor.
The team's return was celebrated with a
parade and banquet, with many notables of the
state in attendance.
Climax of the festivities came with an all-
University assembly at which each member
of the team was introduced and Governor
Leslie C. Hunt gave the keynote address.

Intramural Boxing and Wrestling
Lambda Delta Sigma, by virtue of five champion-
ships and a second place winner, captured their
fourth consecutive wrestling championship at Wyo-
ming. In second place in the mat tournament were
the Independents for the third successive year.
Don Wheeler, Kappa Sigma light heavyweight,
clinched a tie for the championship by outclassing
Anderson of the Lambda Delta Sigma. The victory
gave the Kappa Sigs a 14-point tie with the LDS,
who were seeking their third boxing title. In third
place behind the two leaders, Phi Delta Theta cap-
tured both the boxing and wrestling third-place
crowns, scoring 10 points in boxing and 10 in
Dave Roberts, defending champion in the 165-
pound class, successfully defended his title by over-
coming a strong first-round attack from Harold
Rollins, Sigma Nu, and was awarded a decision after
a smashing third-round comeback.

One of the more popular winter sports on the campus, skiing, took some-

the Snowy Range was closed during the winter months, several of the more
ardent fans continued their weekend treks to the mountains.
The Summit area also proved popular with skiers.

Organized five years ago for the purpose of devising a plan
for financing the proposed Student Union building, the Student
Senate is the legislative and policy forming body for the Asso-
ciated Students of the University of Wyoming. The group
includes twenty-three members, who represent a cross-section
of student interests. The Senate has always been an active
legislative body, fostering such projects as the Student Health
Service, revival of the WYO, and the inclusion of the public
exercises series in registration fees.

In semi-weekly meetings the Student Senate decides on
general policies and plans. Then most of the administrative
duties are assumed by the standing committees. The typical com-
mittee is organized with two Senate and two non-Senate
members, plus one administrative and one faculty member.
Most active among the Senate committees are the executive,
finance, Union managing, general activities, publications, loan,
and social. Committee minutes are presented to the Senate for
approval and then placed in permanent files.
That student government at the University of Wyoming com-
pares favorably with other schools is demonstrated by the fact
that the University board of trustees, the administration, and
the faculty delegate broad powers to this body. Its members
perform a real service for the school.
Gearing its program to war, the Senate has stressed this year
such activities as stamp sales, scrap drives, and the Branding Iron
Service Fund. This year's Student Senate has been up to past
standards despite the difficulties of operating in wartime. Don
Shanor has been a hard-working and capable president.
Marybcth Burns, sophomore, took over the student manager's
duties after Minihan's departure for the armed forces.

Thursday morning is the time when everyone drops in the
Union to pick up o Branding Iron, weekly campus newspaper.
A member of the Associated Collegiate Press, the "B. I." covers
the campus news adequately and well.
This year the Branding Iron was sent to hundreds of Wyo-
ming men now serving in the armed forces. Contributions from
various organizations to the Branding Iron Service Fund made
Like all other campus activities, the Branding Iron has been
a bit harassed this year by changing personnel. Sometimes the
staff tears its collective hair trying to get the news in and the
paper out, but it's all good fun.
Jack Moses has served this year as managing editor and
hence "big boss" of the paper. Don Shanor has kept the books
in the black as business manager. Roy Peck began the year as
desk editor and later was replaced by Ruth Ryan. News editor
is Betty Caldwell.
The sport scene is Jack Lebsack's field, and social doings are
up Patty Tobin's alley. Nancy Putnam obliges with a weekly
feature story, and Lucille Chambers manages the circulation.
Lila Mae Hofmann pinch hit all year and replaced "Mose" as
editor spring quarter.

Emmeline Lytle, Bill Symons, Bill Schwiering, Sandra MacKay,

Nearly scrapped because of war exigencies, the
WYO annual was published this year in spite of de-
creased enrollment and priorities on film and flash
bulbs. Despite the fact that the size of the book had
to be cut, Lila Mae Hofmann and Betty Caldwell,
editors, have made a sincere attempt to give as com-
plete as possible a picture of this war year at Wyoming.
When the finance committee of the Senate decreed
that 700 WYO's must be sold in advance before
publication could be attempted, Business Manager
Kermit Eggensperger put over a sales campaign that
resulted in the sale of over 800 annuals. Analylle
Smith became "Doc's" successor when the army called,
and handled the advertising for the book.
Those who have given valuable assistance to the
editors in publishing the WYO are Roger Loving and
Greg Fitzgerald, photographers; Ellis Brown, staff
artist; Marybeth Burns, organizations editor; Roy Peck,
sports editor, and Mr. James C. Stratton, faculty ad-
visor and guardian angel.

Nord Gardner uses his wiles on Barbara MacKay.
Highlighting the year of student productions was the presentation of Sigmund Romberg's
famous musical hit, "The Desert Song." Featuring one of the strongest casts ever assembled
for a University production, more than sixty people and a full orchestra took part in it.
Nord Gardner as Pierre Birabeau and Barbara MacKay as Margot Bonvalet headed the cast,
with Ray Salisbury as Benny, Marge Manley portraying the part of Susan, Margaret Bolle in
the seductive part of Azuri, Harry Thompson and Johnny Davis portraying the characters
of Sid El Kar and Captain Paul Fountaine, and Jimmy Thompson as General Birabeau, Hale
Laybourn, Byrne Gardner, Ted Hoy and Bob Spatz in supporting roles.
George Gunn, director of voice, was director of the production, and the departments of
music, art, drama, and dance combined their efforts to make this one of the best perform-
ances of the year.

Big event of the year for the University theatre was "Mr. and Mrs. North," presented
Tuesday night, November 19. Leading roles were played by Margaret Bolle and Jack Wein-
barg, well known campus thespians. Heading a large cast of supporting players were Kermit
Eggensperger and Jake Lebsack. Dean Nichols, speech professor, directed the play.
Replete with corpses and even more so with laughs, "Mr. and Mrs. North" belonged to
the type of mystery drama which keeps one in chuckles rather than in chills.
During winter quarter, members of the drama department read Shakespeare's "Taming
of the Shrew" at a Twilight Hour program in the Union. Participating were Marian Cibbs,
narrator, and Ray McKinsey, Barbara Ann Benton, Jake Lebsack, Jack Weinbarg, Fred Ber-
kenkemp, Nord Gardner, Shirley Baker, and Virginia Del Monte.
The drama department collaborated with the music and art departments in presenting
the extremely successful operetta, "Desert Song," on February 1 1.

The Department of Voice offers individual vocal training of a thorough and musicianly
nature and is producing many accomplished singers on our campus. Several choral organizations
of University students were quite active during this year. There was the always popular
A Cappella choir presenting programs with varied repertoire; the chorus which sang Men-
delssohn's oratorio, the "Elijah;" the Men's and Women's Glee Clubs giving their individual
programs and uniting to present Romberg's opera "The Desert Song;" the male quartette and the

A strong interest in modern choreography has been created on the ccmpus during the
past several years by the Workshop Dance group. The group has no formal organization
and is held together by the enthusiasm of the members and leadership of the director,
Miss Charlotte Bergstrom.
Outstanding production of the group this year was Tschaikowski's "Nut Cracker Suite,"
the choreodrama given in May. Other dance programs presented were a tea recital, an
assembly program, and a Twilight Hour.
The more advanced members of the group are allowed to create original choreography,
and the calibre of the work done is very high.
Girls who have been members of the group this year are Margaret Van Wagnen,
Maxine Roukema, Betty Mitchell, Maurine Fitch, Mary Boyce, Roberta Eads, Margie
Edwards, Teddy Anne Storey, Gladys DeBerry, Mary Maxwell, Barbara Evans, Jean Ann
Dunn, Judith Topham, Jean Boyce, Renee Howard, and Virginia Quick.

Regular public performances are given by the University symphony orchestra, under the direction
of Robert Becker. This year the group gave a full concert in the fall quarter. In winter quarter, it
participated in producing the operetta, "The Desert Song," and played for numerous assemblies. During
spring quarter a concerto concert was given with student soloists.
The personnel of the orchestra is made up of talented students and faculty members in the division
Chamber music groups under Mr. Becker's supervision have set a high standard in ensemble playing.
The string quartet, Frances Ross and Elaine Crowley, violins; Sheila Wheat, viola; and Jane Holliday,
cello, have appeared in concert and on the radio many times this season.
The University band has made about 25 appearances this year, including two concerts.
The Cowboy band started with eighty members this fall, and for the first time a girls' band was
organized. During spring quarter, the loss of men made complete reorganization necessary.
Band officers this year were Bill Avery, president; LaVerne Clarke, vice-president; and Walter
Klahn, manager. Officers of the girls' band were Patricia Sellers, Barbara MacKay, and Donna Toland.
Drum majors were Nathal Occhipinti and Marian Jacobson.
